Or, if you're a KDE developer, it's just a wish - unbelievable!
It would have been smarter to continue reading the thread.
Implemented by revision 808087 in openSUSE Plasma branch (not performance
optimized though :-).
Stephan, will you backport the Suse fix for this when trunk is 4.2? Thanks in
BTW: I just added the apps I want via the Autostart KCM instead of saving a
session. That also has the advantages that you can autostart KDE3 apps (the
session manager only remembers the apps base name, not the full path, so if
you eg. had Kopete from KDE3 running, the KDE4 version will show up next
Running openSUSE 11 KDE4 Factory (4.0.99...) there is now a Save Session
option in the "Leave" kickoff menu tab. So for me, this one is solved.
i don't have this on my mandriva, so this doesn't seems to be on upstream KDE
Save Session still missing on kubuntu with kde 4.1 rc1 (4.0.98; from the
repository). further, in
4.1 feature plan:
i found no mention of
desktop session save - not marked as DONE nor TODO nor IN PROGRESS - just not
on the map. nor in the 4.2_Feature_Plan! maybe i missed it, but if not, this
is not a good sign.
I added it to the TechBase (thanks Aaron for pointing me to the article):
So a fix is known. It's implemented in OpenSUSE, but it looks as though the
originator of the fix has not backported it for use upstream.
